It’s always a pleasure to receive an email from the good people at the Irish Examiner – aka, to those in southwest Ireland, Da Paper – asking if I can help out with something rugby-related. I’d happily rejig my work calendar to accomodate them as they’re so easy to work with. Kind, too. Makes writing for them thoroughly enjoyable.
My latest is here, ahead of the coronavirus-affected Six Nations match between France and Ireland at Stade de France on Saturday.
That a particular rugby question would be raised again so quickly after France’s 38-21 win over Wales on Saturday was as sure as œufs are œufs.
